USP's Institute of International Relations invites students to apply for the São Paulo School of Advanced Science on Science Diplomacy and Innovation Diplomacy (InnSciD-SP). The school will consist of a 10-day course that will take place August 21-30, 2019 at the University of São Paulo in São Paulo, Brazil.

Important Dates:

Beginning of the registration period: April 20, 2019

Closing of the registration period: May 5, 2019

Announcement of the students selected to participate: May 15, 2019

Support and Selection Process:

The school will fully fund the flights (Economy Class) and accommodation (standard and shared rooms) for all participants thanks to a grant from FAPESP (this does not, however, apply to students currently in Brazil receiving a FAPESP scholarship or those who live in the Greater São Paulo metropolitan area). Other expenses will not be covered by InnSciDSP.

There are 40 vacancies for international participants and 40 vacancies for participants from Brazil. The main target audience for the school are students enrolled in Master's, doctoral or postdoctoral programs who have interest in the school's topics. When presented with multiple candidates of similar abilities, we will aim to diversify/balance the student body on the basis of gender and geographic origin.

Participant selection will be conducted by members of the InnSciD-SP Executive Committee on the basis of the information submitted online for registration.

How to apply: Please fill out a registration form at and upload the following files:

  • A letter of interest describing your motivations for participating (pdf, 1 page maximum).
  • A description of your current research (pdf, 2 pages maximum).
